Notes from Sunday’s Loss to the Giants

With losses by both the Seahawks and 49ers Sunday, the Cardinals can clinch the NFC West with a win this week in Philadelphia on Thanksgiving Night. It would be their first division title since 1975 when they won the NFC East while in St. Louis.

·The Cardinals 37-29 loss to the NY Giants was their first home loss since 11/25/07 vs. San Francisco. The loss snapped the Cardinals seven-game home win streak.

·Tim Hightower’s two rushing TDs in the game give him nine rushing TDs on the season, tying Ronald Moore’s franchise rookie record, set in 1993.

·With his third catch against the Giants, Larry Fitzgerald became the second-fastest receiver in NFL history to record 400 career receptions, doing so in his 71st career game. Only Anquan Boldin (67 games) reached the mark in few games than Boldin. Fitzgerald became the youngest receiver in NFL history (25 years and 119 days) to reach the 400 receptions milestone. New England’s Randy Moss held the previous record (25 years and 305 days).


·With 71 receiving yards against the Giants, Fitzgerald now has 1,010 receiving yards on the season. He became just the third wide receiver in franchise history with three 1,000-yard seasons, joining Anquan Boldin (3) and Roy Green (3).

·The 351 yards passing against the Giants represent the 48th 300-yard passing game of Kurt Warner’s career. He now has 18 300-yard games as a member of the Cardinals, the second-highest total in franchise history (Neil Lomax—19). It was Warner’s fifth consecutive 300-yard game this season, tying Kerry Collins (2001-02) and Joe Montana (1982) for the second longest streak in NFL history.
